These are probably the best skewers on the market and the closest thing to a thru axle that you can get in a quick release. Relatively light, for what you are getting, these will beat any flip lever style quick release including the venerable Shimano DA QR skewers. If you have to do any descending at all, these are well worth the spend.
Pros Very secure. Will not come lose. Will not slip.
Cons Heavier than the should be by a little. Expensive
